Oonas Dive Club Hotel
Ranked #83 of 233 Hotels in Sharm El Sheikh
Reviewed 13 July 2017

This is a small dive operation running its own dive boat and trainning packages.
The dive club is under the hotel so it is ideal for access
rooms are clean airconditioned and basic .(You wont see much of them)
The dive centre operated day boat and beach diving daily
the boats are comfortable with excellent food served at miday aboard.
the egyptian hotel and restauraunt and dive operation staff are polite happy and cant do enogh to please.
the dive guides are British and are amongst the finest dive professional i have met anywhere.
safty is of paramount consideration and i think this applies to complete novices to the ex instructors who still return regularly on holiday
it is often referred to as having a family atmosphere with many guests being regular return guests
so friendly is the atmosphere that many guests are happy to travel here alone and usually leave with many new friends
it has world famous beer oclock when divers meet after diving activities and compare their days pictures and stories .
it would be rude not to join in and sitting alone is simply not allowed !!
you will often here people say at the end of their week that they have barely seen their room or if staying at a nearby all inclusive that next time they would choose to stay at oonas for convienience!!
the nearby sonesta beech hotel and casino resort offers non divers who dont like being on boats many pools and such like and might be advisable for mixed groups of small children or ardent non boating non snorkelling non swimming members of a party.
i have been exceptionally lucky in life and dived over the world but i have been returning here for 25 years
booking is direct from the link on the website oonasdiveclub.
its the staff both british and egyptian that make this place special
another advantage is its multinational clientel...yet again on this trip i made friends with Americans,Belgians,Austrians,Swiss ,Germans and Brithish people.
Its so special ,you can have absolute beginners sharing dives and knowlege with ex instructors with thousands of dives...and it works.
the recent lack of direct flights from the uk has largely been ignored by those in the know and flying via cairo with a short transfer flight to sharm is easily booked with egypt air whose flights have food lovely planes and staff.(They have prooved very reliable.) Admitedly a little more expensive but with a huge 2x23kg hold and 8kg hand luggage on all but the special offers you really can take everything including your kitchen sink.
the shallow sites and amazing wall dives offers something for everyone
Shark /yolanda dive site is world famous as are the reefs of the straights of tiran
in the summer months late june july august and early september Shark reef is probably the best dive site in the world still.
go now before the crowds return
the red sea is amazing and is better now than its ever been.
read others reviews .........over time.........youll see that this little gem is persitantly brilliant.

Room Tip: room 1 and suite a have stunning bay views

The accommodation and the food are just ok, but it is great diving with Oonas. Our diveguide was Nick, a very easy going guy. It was very relaxing to dive with Nick. Breefings were very clear, and during the dives he showed us the best places. I can highly recommend Oonas (and Nick)!!

Despite the challenges Oonas delivered a first class experience yet again. Assured of a friendly welcome and with the Oonas family of dive guides and guests (mostly on their umpteenth return visit) enjoying beer o'clock daily. First time divers and those travelling solo can also be confident they will become part of the Oonas family.

I can't say enough good things about our diving experience with Oonas. The whole team was super helpful and friendly, the dives were great, the boat was great, and even the food was good! All for a very fair price. I even had a minor medical issue come up, and they made sure that I was well taken-care of---can't thank them enough for that. Amy was super helpful with arrangements in advance via email, and with getting us situated with equipment and weighting in the cold super salty Red Sea water (with a beach dive on their house reef, which was pretty impressive for close to shore in a highly touristed area), and then we had two fantastic days of boat diving and snorkeling with Pete at local sites and Ras Mohammad. Will absolutely dive with them again! (Point of Clarification: We didn't stay here, we stayed just next door at the Movenpick but we dove with Oonas.)

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was great! Guests can make use of the Sonesta resort beach area and beach towels are provided.
The best service we experienced in our 2week trip in Egypt!
Rooms are a bit small but all have a great sea view.
Restaurant offers great food at reasonable prices.
Would recommend and visit again.

Pancakes at breakfast are great

Always was and still is the best dive center in Sharm. Great staff with many years of experience who are always willing to offer help and answer any questions you have. People return year after year to dive with them and this speaks volumes. Cannot fault them in any way.

a superb weeks diving meeting old diving friends and new
lovely to see the club thriving and evolving
wonderful well organised diving
diving with Dolphins has to be a memorable highlight
excellent boat crews and the egyptian staff at the small hotel couldnt have been better
nothing was too much trouble
the diving staff were still the best
beer oclock was a wonderfull opportunity to meet after the day and chat to old and new friends
if you want small friendly personnal service with the highest safty standards when diving and a relaxed convivial atmosphere in the evening look no further.
egypt airs flights were first class.
there baggage allowance is ideal for divers.
the dive sites are in excellent condition.
highly recomended again!
